With a multitude of projects on his plate, including Power and his newly-released show on BET, 50 Central, 50 Cent has been a busy man. While 50 may be celebrating his TV success, he might soon have another lawsuit on his hands, courtesy of photographer Christopher Pasatieri.
According to TMZ, 50 is being sued for using unlicensed photos taken by Pasatieri during a 2014 reunion concert with G-Unit at New York’s Citi Field. Pasatieri claims that he took photos of 50 and G-Unit during the show, and that the “In Da Club” rapper wasn’t allowed to post the pictures on social media. TMZ reports that Pasatieri has taken photos of the G-Unit general before, and that his pics are now being used by the rapper to sell his own products.
The photo in question was posted when 50 was promoting his SMS headphones, in addition to his BET show 50 Central on Instagram. Along with 50, G-Unit have reportedly been included in the lawsuit, as well. Currently, 50 is busy shooting season five of Power.
Billboard reached out to 50 Cent’s reps for comment. Take a look at Pasatieri’s photo of 50 below.
